    So, I have several versions of the figure and a bunch of the accessories(sadly mostly in storage), but I haven't paid close enough attention to what sets work with which versions. Can anyone give me the low down?

    The main mold variants (add any if i left them off)
    ROTF Prime
    Buster Prime
    Striker Prime

    Add-ons:
    UFO Jetwing add-on
    UFO Buster gun add-on
    FWI Jetfire Add-on
    Cubex gun and chrome stacks
    FWI-4
    Wasn't there another set of chrome stacks?

    Also, interactivity with the UFO trailer

    I figure the hands/swords/hooks/shields are universally compatible

    So, to reiterate - which molds are compatible with which add-ons and which add-ons are incompatible with one another?

    Thanks!

    HFTD Battlehooks Prime

    Instead of having the blades, he has the face ripping hooks... and battle damage.. other than that I believe he's the exact same as the original ROTF mold.

    I also have the UFO jetpack and it works with him. Not perfectly because the gas tanks don't come off but, with a little playing around, it fits. If you just remove the tanks, it fits easier but, it's a lot more loose.

    All of the add-on's work with any version. It's a matter of replacing pieces already there. Smoke stacks, hands, cubex guns (works on the molds that have them) some of the versions come with replacement panels to hook them up to figures without the removable tanks.

    UFO Trailer, works with all.

    The only real thing that doesn't work on all molds is the jetpack and that's because of the removable tanks and the notch on the bottom. So what your looking for is a list of the molds that DO NOT have the notch and which ones that don't have the removable tanks. (Not sure if they are the same)

    There are I believe 13 versions of this mold are you looking for a list with, what can be used for each version or just the ones you have listed?

    Dude, IMO you should post this question in the 3P discussion to get better feedback. I have the Primes you listed and TBH they do look good with the add on parts.

    For me:

    1. Buster looks good with the FWI add on.

    2. Striker (no chrome), I use the UFO gray trailer for him.

    3. ROTF version I would use the chrome smoke stacks and gun.

    Hope that helps...my apologies if I'm not clear...kinda tired from work.

    Jetwing Optimus is a different mold from the ones you listed above. While they both have abs, Striker's gas tanks are not removable, unlike Jetwing.

    No the Black Amazon one has no Buster gun it's a repaint of the normal ROTF one - I don't know if the Amazon KO has their buster gun or not - I think a few people have bought one so someone should know that.

    Amazon Prime Plus normal colour blue accented Jetfire looks lovely combined.
